STUDY DESIGN In vitro wear simulation. OBJECTIVE To determine the type and amount of wear produced by experimental metal-on-metal artificial discs for the lumbar spine. To minimize the amount of wear by changing the carbon content, clearance, and presence of a keel and notch. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA In contrast to the extensive number of hip joint replacement simulator studies examining the effects of individual design variables on wear, existing artificial lumbar disc wear publications… CONTINUE READING
